About

Our Dark Kenya AA coffee is a rich and sweet dark roast with savory floral notes and balanced acidity at a deeper roast level. The body of this coffee is extra bold but also bright, allowing for the tell-tale fruit and wine-like flavors of our wet-processed Dark Kenyan coffee to shine through.

Hand-picked coffee cherries are delivered to the wet mill the same day they are harvested. Cherry sorting is carried out at the mill, followed by wet processing, followed by sun-drying on raised tables. The coffee beans then proceed to the dry mill for secondary processing.

Bungoma County AA coffee is grown by small holders, generally with less than 200 trees each, delivering fresh coffee cherries to cooperative mills.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.
